My Wish For You This Mother's Day

May you find time to smell the flowers ...

time to relax ...

time to enjoy the children in your life ...

as mother's we know how quickly they leap from toddlers to adults

I wish you a peaceful spot in which to read, enjoy your morning coffee or ...

enjoy the beauty of your garden.

While you're out there make sure to smell a rose and if you don't have a rose, find one in your neighborhood and smell it.  :)

Let somebody serve you lunch or dinner ~ alfresco style ...

and when it's time to do the dishes, go find yourself a comfy spot and put your feet up and ...

take one last chance to smell the flowers before Monday morning arrives and real life begins again ;-).

All photos courtesy of the Wing Haven Garden Walk in Charlotte, NC.  That is where I spent my day today thanks to the tickets I received as a birthday gift from my son.  Thanks, Mike.  It was a perfect day in every way.

Happy Mother's Day!!
